We have known for a few days Gina Carano, Muay Thai and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter was going to be one of the new Gladiators but we were unsure of which one. Well it has been confirmed she will be gladiator ‘Crush’, a new name added to the mix for more then one reason I am sure.

I happened upon this accidentally. I was beginning to get curious about who would be the new Gladiators for the show, so I decided to look it up. I had a feeling that there would possibly be either someone associated with MMA or professional wrestling in the mix...but I had not considered this possibility. Should be interesting.

I don't know what to think of this. American Gladiators was an entertaining show but kind of corny. Bringing it back is a risk. It could do well but it might flop horribly. Gina is hot so whatever she does i'll support her but hopefully this won't hinder her training too much.

i dont see this new gladiatiors being able to touch the originial. the corniness was part of the magic, not to mention they had like every nerf gun ever made.

Gladiators was cool back for it's day,but I think that's exactly were it should have stayed.Back in the day!

It might be alright though,but I don't see it generating the hype it did back in the early 90's.

I just hope her appearance there helps spread MMA awareness.
